  • Good news for asians particularly Filipinos because the LS2 Valiant here costs only 10k pesos which is about $200-$220.

  • I'm going to the shop now to change my RPHA MAX (2014) to RPHA 90 (2020) ... time has passed + 2 crashes ... but RPHA MAX do the job ... I like РОС shape which fit me perfectly ... quality and safety ... Greeting from Russia = we love your channel both in Eng and Russian translation ...

  • Great review but any updates to the lineup that would be worthwhile discussing? I want to get a modular helmet and like the Shark because of the way it opens but keep finding less than stellar reviews. I sort of narrowed down to Shoei and now (because I saw this) the HJC. I welcome your thoughts. BTW - I love your approach and subtle innuendos. Great stuff - keep up the good work!

  • Heads-up, the HJC modular Rapha helmet was comfortable in the showroom, and torture to wear when wearing my sunglasses, the same sunglasses that fit perfectly inside my other helmets, including an older Rapha helmet. Make sure you try the helmet with the glasses you regularly use!

  • Every review I've ever come across on modular helmets omits to take a look at the BMW system x helmet line. Shame really_they have plenty going for them. I'd even consider my next replacement to be another BMW system x(my third); even tho I've moved away from riding BMW motorcycles.

  • How is the venting on the HJC helmets? I often find that vents are a decorative piece and never actually function properly. Too many leak.

  • Since my crash in 2015, with my girlfriend on the back, we never used modular/flip-up helmets anymore. The helmets were closed at the time of crash, but if she had it open it would damage her face. Btw, we were only going at 25mph when a lady decided to jump the STOP sign when we were just in front of her.

  • I tired on all of them except the AGV none fit right and that LS2 is the ugliest helmet I have ever seen ! I bought the Simpson Bandit modular fit perfect lots of vent's feel's light enough but comfort is everything when buying a helmet I don't care how much it cost's.

  • Going from a HJC ISMAX-2 to a Neotec 2, gotta say the neotec just feels all around better. More solid chin bar in both up and locked positions. Also the neotec fits my dome a bunch better. the HJC liner had this really bad sewing spot on the forehead area which left a painful dent across my head after wearing it a while. Modified the stitching for it and that did help.

  • I've owned a Shuberth since the same time I was skeptical and purchased an HJC as a spare and my bro bought a Shoei. We ride year round in heat, cold, wind and rain. In 2020 my Shuberth is still functioning perfectly while all the other helmets have rotted and torn liners, broken vents and strap clips, but the Shuberth is totally intact. Most of all...the aerodynamics of the Shuberth doesn't get caught by crosswinds and gusts like the other helmets, especially the HJC. I suggest real world testing rather than a lab test. The Shuberth not only out performs in durability, but in the wind...and it can handle sweat without rotting. My bro even replaced his shoei with an Arai, but it's liner rotted too. I know where my money will go...and none of the helmets you reviewed will get a cent.

  • I had my local parts monkeys order in every single high end modular helmet they could get their hands on not long ago. I had a few more models than you have in this video. I tried them all. I picked the AGV Sport modular hands down, I was in love with the helmet. I opted to wear it home. I made it 4 miles and turned around to return it for that damn chin strap. I wanted to love that helmet, but the chin stap made it un-wearable. My next pick...the HJC RPHA90, believe it or not.

  • I took a testride with the neotec2 and it was a lot louder then my hjc is max 2 that is 2 years and 60000km old. At 30km/h it is quiter though so its quiet when it doesn't matter yet louder when you want quiet! Very disappointing at that pricepoint.

  • Who really rides with their modular up? It’s only for stop lights when it’s hot as fack and it’s worth it forsure. Not having sweat blind you right before you take off from a stop light is totally worth it.

  • In my opinion shoei maybe a little more expensive but the quality of the product is far away superior to all other presented. It all comes down to how much you value your HEAD. For some people I know a plastic bag would be enough. :)

  • I’ve owned the HJC, the Schuberth E1 (aka, C3 Pro) and now the Neotec 2. Hands down winner is the Neotec 2. Proper sizing. Comfort. Quiet as the E1 without getting a decibel meter, just my opinion. Locks without having to manipulate the cheeks. And it’s the first helmet in my life of 48 years of riding that when I put it on, it doesn’t fold my ears down. I have no problem with the weight and it feels lighter when at speed. It doesn’t rock forward on my head like the stiff neck roll causes on the E1, so my eyes are in the center of the visor opening. And my head fits in it like a hand in a well worn glove. I have a 61.5 cm head and the XL is spot on. I had a 2XL with the E1 but needed a 3XL. HJC??? 4XL to fit my head!!! WTF? Anyway, the com system arrives today. Cardo needs to step it up with their contracts as made-to-fit com units are the thing of the future. And by the way, the neck-roll Cardo unit on the Schuberts sucked like a $600 Dyson vacuum! I actually tossed it in the garbage after a year. So hard it rocked the lid forward so bad the visor opening was on top of my eyebrows and the regular neck roll was not much better. It was quiet, I’ll give it that, but I cannot tell the difference from the Neotec 2. The HJC? Well it’s not too bad for a budget lid. I was able to sell it for just $50 less than I paid for it and dude loved it but he had a quiet bike. My Harley is obnoxiously loud and I love it! Thanks for the video. Good stuff here!

    • I always had a rule to not buy a helmet unless I tried it on. I broke that rule 2 years ago and I’ll never break it again. I need a 3XL for a Schuberth. A 4XL for an HJC and a XL for a Shoei. My head hasn’t changed sizes since the 70s when I was a child. So as you can see, sizing is greatly varied between companies. If you are going to buy online without trying one on somewhere else, make sure they have a good return or size exchange policy. None of that restocking fee crap. Which is crap. I have tried on a lid at a store but bought one from online. Better prices and colors online. But find one and try it on before you buy. Good luck in your search.

  • I have worn many modular helmets in the past, & the best one I have found is the Lazer Monaco Evo. It has got a host of safety features, extremely light, an in-built communications system, washable inners etc. The best feature is the Photochrome visor. Similar to sunglasses it darkens automatically. Ridden through tunnels & it lightens up in seconds. Have had this for over a year & find it faultless. It costs around £400 in the UK. This is Lazer's video -

  • for the past few years, i've used a Zox Condor helmet. I found that for just over $100 its been a great bucket. Its got washable and replaceable inserts, hyperallergenic, deep ear sockets for comms speakers, good venting, nose guard and chin curtain, and fits nicely on my XL noggin...also, i found that the bronze inner visor has been brilliant on days that are very glarey and when used at night, really cuts down that blinding headlight glare but also seems to make the lines on the road really stand out, almost as if they were underlit
